Dianna believed as a youngster that as she grew in age and exposure to art, to classes, instructors workshops, etc. that she would become an acclaimed artist some day - regrettably no other person(s) in her family or small hometown school in Bethany, OK shared or supported that belief. Pursuing art in highschool or college was not an option open to her as a question relative to her youth would have been "what crazy person would think the pursuit of art could ever be challenging, profitable or just plain fulfilling? Education was strictly for attaining a job skill and, better yet, a spouse!" Artistic pursuits or dreams were out of the question.
Years later with children raised, one marriage broken, the next one ideal, career goals and retirement funds in the bank, and uncounted art classes under her belt, she's back in a positive artist groove headed for greatness. Moving in 2000 from "The Big Apple" to small town Walla Walla, WA where, like NY the arts are revered and practiced in many mediums, practices, and locations, the mystery and magic of acrylics, gels, collage, encaustic heat guns and wax cans are where her passion now lies. Hosting a successful one woman art show in June 2011, displaying work in the Washington State University's Chancellor's juried show, Richland campus, in both '11 and '12, along with being accepted in the International Encaustic Artists Juried Show in '12, Dianna's interest and love of creating are alive and well in her home studio, second floor, Walla Walla, WA.
